The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) has worked for over 50 years to support international students and the institutions, students' unions and organisations who work closely with them.
As well as giving advice direct to students, we support our members by providing training, up-to-date guidance about immigration rules and information about the wider student experience. By working collaboratively with our members we are able to raise areas of concern with government departments and raise awareness of the benefits that international students bring to the UK in the wider media.
We're a small organisation of 17 staff based in London, but have nearly 500 members. Our membership includes every university in the UK, many FE colleges, independent schools and students' unions. Our income of £1.5 million comes from a range of sources: membership subscriptions, training courses, conferences and grant funding.
